Similarity-Dissimilarity in Counselor-Counselee Ethnic Match: An Investigation of the Attitudes of Black Counselees Toward White Counselors.
Harrison, Don K.
Attitudes of black counselees toward white counselors were investigated using Rosen's Consequence Model Questionnaire (an adaptation of Edward's decision making paridigm of subjective probability-utility) and Gurin's modification of Rotter's Internal-External Locus of Control Scale. Pre-measures revealed an overall favorable attitude toward white counselors before the counseling experience. Post-attitude measures revealed a significant (P less than .01) attitude of black counselees assigned to white counselors and a more significant (P less than .001) negative attitude toward white counselors by black counselees who had black counselors. Experience sensitized counselees to the limitations of white counselors, suggesting they became pro-black rather than anti-white. (Author)
